Hello scrappy peeps, I am sooooo excited to share my first layout for the D-lish Scraps Design Team. A big thanks to Amanda for having me on this amazing design team!
Here is my first layout of the month;
For this layout I used the July Just Add Paper (JAP) Kit, Rustic Charm and was inspired by the colours of the mood board and embellishments in the kit – the greys and pink/apricots. The JAP kit is a fantastic way to get an array of embellishments (washi tape, flairs, wooden pieces, flowers etc) each month to add to your layouts. I look forward to my subscription every month – my little piece of happy mail! I still have quite a few embellies left over which will make another layout or card. I just loved the wooden heart in this kit – I backed this with some paper that matched the colour theme. The Kraft tag was another of my favourite pieces from this JAP kit.
I created my background by mixing Dylusions paints to create the colours I was after. I also applied some Colour Blast paste in Snow White on the background to give some shine and texture. I stamped on the background using Kaisercraft texture stamps – Lattice and Chevron. I matted the photo of my two boys with some tissue paper and patterned paper from the Pinkfresh collection. I used the embellishments from the JAP kit – flair button, flowers (resin and paper) to finish off the layout.
If you ever miss out on a kit, then be sure to look at Past Kits and Bits, where you can often find some fantastic goodies from past kits. You may also consider signing up for a Subscription (if places become available); keep an eye on the D-lish Scraps Facebook page for news about Subscriptions.
Here are some close up photos – thankyou for joining me and I look forward to bringing you another layout later in the month.
